The book offers much rich new material in the field of Iranian iconography, including bold metaphysical speculations on the theme of light metal work and pottery, in-depth studies of the meanings associated with various animals in both the pagan Turkish and the Perso-Islamic traditions, and aspects of funerary, royal and religious themes in ceramics and textiles. This remarkable variety of approach and content, supplemented by a rich variety of nearly 300 illustrations, testifies to the exponential increase in the range and quality of scholarship in Iranian and Islamic art over the last several decades.First published in 1994 in hard cover edition, this volume will soon be available in paperback edition.
